MLB Philanthropic August 2019 Update

Dear Members,
 
I hope everyone is having a great summer.  I wanted to provide you all with our quarterly philanthropic update.  Please take a few minutes to update yourself on what we've accomplished over the last few months and our call to actions.
MLB 2019 aGBS: MLB Scholarships
MLB provided two scholarships worth $2,500 each to Stavros Lahanis (U of I) and Cici Zhang, pictured here:  Both students are children of immigrants and will be the first in their families to attend college.  
Titan's Helping Titans
MLB donated $3,800 towards purchasing the school supplies to all 150 students in need.  Yesterday a group of volunteer students and parents go together and assembled these backpacks.  This was only achievable because of MLB's generous donation.  In previous years they simply had a closet where students would go and take what they need when they needed it.  They have never had everything provided in a backpack day one of the school year.  
Special thanks to Pat Garvey and Garvey Office Supplies.  The materials were provided at cost and at a reduced rate due to the volume.  In the past the same purchase at Staples by one of the THT volunteers would've cost $6K+.
